You'll have two days in Jerusalem including a tour through the city and to Bethlehem before heading to your final destination, Tel Aviv, where you'll also enjoy a group tour around this ancient Roman capital port.

You'll have two nights in Wadi Rum, which includes desert drives to rock formations and ancient inscriptions as well as a hike up Jebel Hash, and you'll then travel to Petra. You'll visit Little Petra which is accessed through a narrow opening—and you'll then have a full day to explore Petra—before departing for the Dead Sea with a short stop at Mujib Canyon.

Fantastic tour! · Jordan - Mar 9 - Mar 13, 2020

Traveler: Kate A. - Local specialist: Margherita Clerici

Ahh we had such a fantastic time in Jordan and the tour was great! It covered everything we wanted to do and more. Margherita was super helpful and organised our trip very efficiently. Our driver was lovely and made sure we had a good time. When there was extra things we wanted to do, it was never too much trouble. Highly recommend KimKim and will definitely be using them again in the future. Thanks to all the team,

Traveler: Ian T. - Local specialist: Sarah Eaton

I had never been to Jordan, but after some research went for Kimkim. Went with them and Sara(h) was the agent.

She is outstanding. organised an outstanding trip, form collection in Israel to dropping off back in Israel. Great suggestions too. Definitely will recommend her to anyone going to Jordan and Petra. Stayed in a Bedouin camp near Little Petra which was very good, and a lot cheaper than the overpriced hotels in Petra as well.

Our local specialist, Lena, was very impressive. She created an itinerary that perfectly met our objectives, and gave knowledgeable answers to all of my questions. After we finalized the plan and paid for the trip, she continued to provide assistance via email as we prepared for our Jordan adventure.

Our drivers, Jamal the first day and Medhet the other four days, were very professional and accommodating. They always arrived on time (early, in fact) to pick us up, and were eager to help in any way possible. In fact, when I left my phone in Medhet's car one evening, he made a special trip to our hotel to return it that night.

Our 5-day tour included Al Maghtas on the Jordan River (the baptism site of Jesus), the Dead Sea, Petra, Wadi Rum, Amman, and Jerash. Petra was the most amazing and impressive attraction, but we would highly recommend visiting all of them. In particular, Jerash was much larger and more interesting than we had anticipated, so it was a special treat to go there on our last day and carry that memory home with us.

If we were planning the trip again, I think we would want to spend 2 days at Petra (making a total of 6 days in Jordan). The extra day at Petra would allow time to explore more of this very extensive site, and also permit spending more time in the museum at Petra, which is by far the best museum we have seen in our visits to Middle Eastern and African countries.

First of all, I want to say thank you to Lena for sticking with us! We took months to plan and finalize our trip, and she was with us through it all, changing our itinerary multiple times and answering our seemingly endless questions promptly!

Jordan was full of natural beauty and we LOVED our hike in Dana and our guide Mohammed. Will never forget having Bedouin tea and freshly warmed pitas with him over lunch. Equally lovely was Wadi Rum. Aicha Camp was gorgeous (and they upgraded us to a panoramic tent - superb!), and our driver on our Jeep tour, Adam, was wonderful. We loved our driver for the first portion of our Jordan trip, Hasan. Always on time and very kind! The only thing I wish we had done differently is make sure that we had transportation arranged for our day at Petra, as our hotel was a bit off the main Tourism Street (Petra Quattro). It was easy to hire our own guide for Petra at the Visitor's Center, but I'm sure Lena could have arranged this for us in advance had we wanted! I also want to note that we loved our cooking lesson at Beit Sitti in Amman our first evening!

Lena was very helpful in prepping us on what to expect during the border crossing at King Hussein Bridge. We were a little nervous, but it went smoothly and our driver Awas was waiting for us on the other side.

Jerusalem was an overwhelming city, but we had the most wondeful guide two days in a row for it and Bethlehem (I loved that we got the same guide as it really allowed you to make a connection). Ibrahim was one of my favorite tour guides ever, anywhere. If I am back in Jerusalem, I know who I am calling. He even checked in on us a few days later to make sure we were okay and ask if he could help us with anything more! The location of our hotel was pretty great too (Gloria on Latin Patriarchate Street near Jaffa Gate). It was definitely older (the dining area is currently being remodeled), but the location makes that worth it.

I thought the price we paid for the trip was quite fair, and appreciated the flexibility Lena showed in booking everything for us.

Thank you again for an unforgettable trip!

What a surprise. I was contacted by Carmen Sholten at in2jordan who helped me refine my wish list into something more practical for the time available. My questions were not treated as too silly, no request for added extras too difficult and I felt like I was the only client going to Jordan that week.
With on exception, from the time our driver, Hasan, met us at the airport until we left every bit of the trip was as I had hoped. The hotels were great, Wadi Rum and Petra hadn't changed much in 20+ years and are still stunning. Our guides were knowledgeable and informed us in different ways. And glueing the whole trip together was Hasan who drove us from place to place, stopping on request for breaks, photo opportunities and all the while telling us about his country. Fantastic guy.
The exception? The weather. It is not controlled by Kimkim or in2jordan so the rainy desert tour was a new experience.
Great trip. Fantastic service by everyone involved. Thank you.

From my side, it has been a pleasure to organize the trip for you, Monica and Joseph; your enthusiasm for this special country you have already visited in the past and that you want to share with your family this time has been the perfect start to organize your trip.

We hope to see you in Jordan again!

I did the Jordan Museum on my last day, took a taxi. You should tell visitors not to miss the exhibition 1001 Inventions, currently there. It is a not miss.

I was a solo traveller and could not have been happier with the sights selected to visit, the accommodation venues, the food, and the skilled, safe, courteous and professional drivers - Hasan and Akram.

And, above all, the warm Jordanian people that I met along the way made me feel very welcome.

Highly recommended.

Thank you for making our trip to Jordan seamless and enjoyable. All the local guides/ drivers were so friendly and wonderful. Shout out to Hassan, the main driver who met us at the airport until he dropped us off in Petra.

Although I know I paid a little more for this trip booking through a travel agency (rather than booking everything myself), it certainly saved me time that I did not have to spend planning. Would highly recommend for Jordan.

Our experience with KimKim was outstanding! This was our first time using KimKim and we will definitely use them again! Amanda - who helped us set up the trip - was a wealth of information, and patience! And her follow through was unsurpassed, including checking in with us several times during the trip. Akram - our driver - was outstanding! His love of Jordan came through everyday and we learned a ton from him, including the history, culture and politics of Jordan and the surrounding countries. We were lucky to have both of them involved in our trip!

All of the guides were incredibly accomodating and lovely. Hasan in particular was delightful. It would have been nice if a bit more commentary was volunteered.

I had a great time in Jordan · Jordan - Nov 22 - Nov 26, 2019

Traveler: Barclay R. - Local specialist: Sarah Eaton

I had a great time in Jordan. The driver's personalities were great and love what they do. I can't say that what we got was different than what another tour company could have provided though. I booked my own hotels so it was essentially boiled down to a car service. Sarah was incredibly responsive. The drivers were on time 100% of the time. It would have been nice to have a SIM card provided like my Egypt tour gave. Or provided A Jordanian delicacy on arrival as a welcome gift. Or something more to make it stand out. But everything went swimmingly from the transfers and planning.

Sarah was amazing through this whole process from beginning to end! She mentioned doing 2 extra things while visiting Petra. We had dinner with a local family which was quite nice. We also went to Petra at night. Petra during the day was amazing too. We took full advantage of both days. On the first afternoon we saw the treasury for the first time. We took pictures from a scenic overlook. Then explored a little further and would up at the high place of sacrifice. Day 2 we started super early and went to the monastery. On the way back we went to see some of those other tombs on the hill and saw a sign for a trail to go see the treasury from the highest point. This was so worth the extra couple miles of walking. On the first day, the tour of Amman and Jerash...I had no idea what to expect of the sites we would see. The biggest surprise was the Aljoun Castle. On our way to Wadi Musa our driver, Ahmad, took us to “little Petra” and joked about a surprise and it was a stop to see a boulder formation that looked like an elephant. Ahmad had snacks for us in the car along with water. That was fun. Both drivers stopped at rest areas so we could get out, use the restrooms, grab a snack, and maybe a souvenir. The short stay in Wadi Rum was great. We had a desert tour (also suggested by Sarah) that was so much fun. Our guide for this was fun with his driving and taking us on a route that gave us quiet time from other tourists at some of the stops. Mt Nebo and the Baptism site were well worth it also. For the Dead Sea day, Sarah has booked us a room at a hotel that had a private beach and that made everything so easy. This was the thing I had been looking forward to the most. I have been intrigued by the Dead Sea since I was a small child when I saw it in a book of natural wonders of the world. I know I missed a thing or two, but Jordan, our drivers, the locals, and the sites we saw all exceeded our expectations. This was an absolutely amazing experience!!

Jordan is a beautiful and expensive country. Not sure if I would ever visit again but I've enjoyed it.

A Most Memorable Trip · Jordan - Nov 1 - Nov 7, 2019

Traveler: Elisa R. - Local specialist: Carmen Scholten

What a fantastic trip! Carmen put a perfect plan together for our family of four, accommodating for all that we had asked for. We had an incredible guide, Khadra, take us through Bethlehem and Jerusalem. She made the trip so much more valuable than we could have done on our own. She gave us personal stories, histories, and my kids (ages 6 and 8) loved her so very much--she was able to make it adult AND kid friendly (not an easy task).

What a fantastic trip! Carmen put a perfect plan together for our family of four, accommodating for all that we had asked for. We had an incredible guide, Khadra, take us through Bethlehem and Jerusalem. She made the trip so much more valuable than we could have done on our own. She gave us personal stories, histories, and my kids (ages 6 and 8) loved her so very much--she was able to make it adult AND kid friendly (not an easy task). The country of Israel/Palestine is beautiful and full of rich heritages. We enjoyed terrific food at Black Pepper in Bethlehem and we also enjoyed a wonderful lunch at an Austrian joint in the Old City. The tour buses in the area were no issue for our guide as she knew her way through the cities and through the lines! We were able to see and visit all the holy sites as well as many other sites (like Banksy's paintings). We highly recommend KimKim travel and Carmen as a specialist. We were able to check this amazing experience off our bucket list and have all the pictures to remember this special place because of KimKim travel. Thank you all so much!

Awesome short break in Jordan. · Jordan - Nov 1 - Nov 4, 2019

We flew into Amman, and then had the long ish drive to Petra. Our driver, Midhat, was great and we didn’t ever feel unsafe, as the roads can be abit chaotic at times! In fact, we had a tyre blow out at one point, and his skilful driving, without wanting to sound dramatic, probably saved our lives as it was at speed.

He stopped at a Resturant for us to get some lunch, and then we went onto Little Petra, which was well worth the visit.
Our over night hotel was the Petra Marriott, it was nice although it was a few miles outside of Petra itself.
The next morning was an early start to meet our guide at Petra. It was very worth while having him, as his knowledge was outstanding.
We left to head to the Wadi desert and stayed at Aicha Memories luxury camp. This was lovely. There is no WiFi, and to be able to switch off from the pressures of business and day to day life was fantastic. We had a drive through the desert to see the sunset, and at night a walk into the desert to star gaze.
We left early the next day, the original plan was to go to Jerash. However, the afore mentioned tyre blow out, along with myself being ill, made us change our plans and we went into Amman. Midhat took us to the Citadel and Ampitheatre, both well worth visiting. The views from the Citadel over Amman city are very good.
We stayed at the Intercontinental hotel, and that was also very good.
We will, I’m sure, be back as this was too fleeting a visit to see it all!

I'd recommend both of them. Our guide in Jerusalem was called Jacob, but he also has a Palestinian name. Fantastic, and super knowledgeable about all the places we went. I have his name to recommend to anyone I know who will be coming to Jordan.

The hotels were all fine, the best ones being in Jerusalem and Haifa. That said, the food in general in Jordan and Israel was not fabulous. Maybe we should have asked for better hotels, but that is certainly not your fault. We realize that hotels have to consider that their guests come from all over the world and it's impossible to please everyone. The best restaurant in Jordan was the one Hassan took us to in Jerash, owned by someone he knew. It was lovely with fountains and a great menu. The food in Wadi Rum at the place we stayed was also good. The neighborhood in Haifa was delightful and lots of good restaurants nearby, I wish we'd spent another day there. Next time...

I will certainly recommend your company if I have any friends who are traveling to your region. I also see that you do tours in other parts of the world, too, and will keep that in mind for the future, as I still plan on traveling even after both of us got sick and had such a long, agonizing trip home with lots of layovers, etc. Again, not your fault, just bad luck. Thanks again for your kind and helpful suggestions and we have great memories of Jerash, Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea, Dana,and of course Petra. Our guides at Dana and Petra back door were also excellent. Your country has so much history and stark beauty I think your tourism numbers will improve. Jordan seemed very safe while being surrounded by turmoil in all directions. Good luck in the future, and thanks again, Lena!

Sincerely,
Kim and Bob McGregor

My wife and I had an excellent down to earth, home cooking lesson experience with Nesreen Ali, Osama's wife with their family in their home. Sherrin's review of the cooking lesson is below:

"My cooking lesson was an A+ !
It was a pleasure to have dinner with Nesreen and Osama and their beautiful, sweet children. They provided not just a generous and warm example of Jordanian hospitality, but also an enjoyable loving, family experience. I learned how to cook traditional Maglouba with Nesreen who is a force of nature with a stunning smile. She exudes joy, happiness and the essence of motherhood. My cooking lesson was decorated with cardamom brewed coffee, family experiences and Arabic lessons. Eight year old Zain smiled shyly and helped when asked to and one and a half year old mischief maker Cadi (whose name means white flower on the mountain) pushed the kitchen chair around, walked around in my shoes and enjoyed herself dancing while mommy sang and clapped. Dave and I had a priceless experience and I learned to watch Nesreen’s left hand fold and tuck the parsley and mint as she chopped and about a new vegetable Jarjeel, water lettuce! I recommend this cooking lesson experience highly." Sherrin Bernstein

I cannot fault the quality of service provided by Amanda.
Planning a trip to Jordan is quite a daunting task. It was also going to be our honeymoon so the pressure was on!

Planning a trip to Jordan is quite a daunting task. It was also going to be our honeymoon so the pressure was on!

My partner and I aren't the most organised people in the world, so we only started to look into planning our trip a couple of months before our wedding. Unsurprisingly, this was a very busy time for us...!

As soon as got in touch via kimkim, Amanda immediately took on the burden of honeymoon planning. She was efficient, and it comforted me to know that she was based in Jordan. She listened and delivered on our requirements, always with a great attitude. What's more, when she found out it was our honeymoon, she seemed genuinely enthused and motivated to make sure our trip was extra special.

We also found all the documentation super helpful - the detailed schedules, the maps etc.

Her attentiveness did not stop once we arrived in Jordan. Amanda made a point of checking in with us at all the right times. Each time we spoke, she was not only professional, she was friendly and personable. Thanks to her, we even managed to get a hotel room upgrade at our hotel in Amman (House Boutique Suites) - the room was HUGE!

5 days into our trip we had some issues with the owner of the Wadi Rum Bubble Luxotel. The owner was extremely rude to us, which was particularly disappointing as we were really looking forward to this experience. However, Amanda handled the situation perfectly. As promised, she was available on Whatsapp at all hours, and immediately responded when we got in touch with her to explain the situation. It didn't go unnoticed that this all unfolded outside of office hours on a Thursday evening (start of the weekend in Jordan). She said and did all the right things within her control, which meant that we were quickly appeased despite the unfortunate situation.

Outside of this one negative experience, I must say that everyone else - from the upgrade at The House Boutique Suites, to the surprise flowers and cake gifted to us at the Petra Bubble Luxotel - were truly hospitable and thanks to Amanda, gave us special attention knowing that we were honeymooners.

Special mentions must also go to Ahmad, our driver, who was brilliant. He was a smooth driver, and his knowledge of all the roads throughout Petra was nothing short of impressive. Ahmad also went the extra mile - he bought us some personalised honeymoon gifts in Jerash, he provided us with cold water and snacks throughout our journey, and really made the effort to make us feel that he was at our service the whole time.

Our personal guide in Petra, Mahmoud (I hope I have the correct spelling!) was phenomenal. He really knew his stuff, and despite the fact he must conduct the same tour several times a day/week, he was so knowledgeable and sincerely passionate in recounting his stories and in educating us on the history of this amazing place.

All in all, we couldn't be happier. Thank you Amanda for making this an experience that will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Our drivers were very good and conversed well with us about life in Jordan and Lebanon.

Jordanian food was excellent and we tried everything. The “mansaf” that our driver Jamal arranged for us to try was outstanding; plus the lots of hummus, falafel, salads and local delicacies that we tried as well. We will be making at home “lemon juice with mint” this Australian summer, now that we the traditional recipe.

The time that we spent with Farris, our Bedouin guide at Wadi Rum, was undoubtedly the highlight of our trip. He was just amazing! Our 'back door' hike in to the Petra monastery with our Bedouin guide was also a memorable experience and not too difficult / stressful a climb; perhaps it was actually easier that the walk up the stairs to the monastery!!!

The 'float' in the Dead Sea was also a unique experience.

We cannot recommend highly enough the countries of Lebanon and Jordan to visit and based upon our personal experiences with Lena, we would encourage people to book their tailor-made trip through KimKim Travel.

But, I went with it since Carmen was very professional and reactive throughout the planning phase. The mobile app with all the trip information and contact details useful for us was a nice touch. Margherita, who works with Carmen also managed to help us during the trip to change a few reservations on the fly and this also worked out flawlessly. It was a really pleasant surprise to have absolutely no unpleasant surprises for 2 whole weeks in a completely new country!

Haitham was our driver who accompanied us through the entire trip and he was much more than a driver! He was a local who seemed to know the country inside out along with all the interesting hidden gems that only a local would know. It was a pleasure having him with us throughout the trip and we hope to keep in touch.

The sign of a good holiday for us has always been leaving with a smile and having made a few new friends along the way and our trip to Jordan was exactly that.

So, all things considered, the money was well spent and I would definitely consider using Kimkim in future for our next vacation. I especially recommend this to first time visits to any country where one lacks any context of local knowledge. It helps being put in touch with trustworthy locals who seem to genuinely care about your experience.

So, thank you Carmen, Margherita and Haitham! :-)

Our trip to Jordan was excellent, exciting and quite dramatic. Everything went off like clockwork. We were met at the appointed times and places by our drivers without fail. All instructions were clear, and we were often given extra time just to be safe.

We were picked up at 7:45 am near our Jerusalem hotel and taken to the Border Crossing, where we were dropped off by our Israeli driver. Then after crossing we were met by our Palestinian driver, Haithan, and cossed into Jordan where we took the long drive along the Dead Sea to Petra. Haithan kept us entertained with stories about the people and customs of the area, stopped and let us take pictures with camels, showed us natural springs and gorges, and much more. His car was cool and clean and equipped with wi-fi, which made it nice.

Petra was a remarkable place to see. We visited Little Petra first then we went on to the main Petra at about 11 am. We chose to visit it at our own pace and to read the clear and informative signs ourselves. The natural rock formations were stunning. We went from a hot and sunny environment to a cool and shady one in an instant, preferring the latter.

Walking through the gorges was quite an overwhelming experience, and seeing the elegantly carved monumental buildings really moved us. To think that an ancient civilization lived there! The Nabuteans were very industrious people and we came to admire them. The primitive holes carved out of the caves and used for wine making and water storage and holding staircases and artwork were all eerily mundane. Stony remnants of the everyday labors of a long-vanished people surrounded us and we were mesmerized by them.

We unfortunately were there on a very hot day, and on our way out we were very very warm and could hardly wait until we reached the Visitor Entrance. The sun was beating down on us very hard, but we made it on foot without a donkey ride. We felt quite victorious!

We stayed at the Petra Moon Hotel, which was itself a dream -- a lovely boutique hotel with all the amenities. .After our exertions, we went out to dinner in the evening after on the rooftop at the buffet there. It was delicious and bountiful. The breakfast buffet was another delightful experience, with all kinds of bread, an omelet bar, fresh fruit, yogurt, nuts, dates, juices...everything! The service was wonderful. They held our luggage and called our driver for us because we did not have cell phone service. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Our driver picked us up on request at our hotel and drove us the two hours to Amman, with stops on the way, and dropping us off at our hotel, the La Locanda, another boutique hotel -- this one with a music theme. The rooms did not have numbers, but rather the names of a famous middle eastern singers or musicians. Our room was named Sabah Fakhri, a Syrian tenor. The next morning Azzam picked us up and took us to the Citadel and then we sat and had a relaxing tea at a restaurant that overlooked the main street. We wanted to get to the airport for our flight to Cairo that night so he obliged us and took us there. Jordan was a great trip.

But it wasn't over because we had to fly back into Amman from Cairo, then cross over the border again into Israel. This was a challenge, because it was a Friday and the Israel border closed at 11 am and our flight was scheduled to arrive at 9 am. But thanks to our tenacious driver Azzam, who picked us up at the airport (and said we got through in only 15 minutes!) and told us he was quite sure we would make it in time as he ferried us through the confusing mass of people on the Jordanian side of the border, we made it! Amjad picked us up on the other side of the border and drove us to the Jerusalem bus station and needless to say we made it to the rest of our destinations. It was quite an experience, that border crossing day. Sometimes we didn't know what was being said among the parties involved. All I know is Azzam said to take care of the bus driver, which we did. A couple on the bus behind us did not know what was going on, had shelled out a hefty "tax" to somebody and were quite bewildered by it all. Thanks to Kimkim I feel like we were quite spared. Thanks so much to Lena, who answered every email and every question I had. Mary

Israel to Petra and Wadi Rum - 4 Days · Jordan - Jul 10 - Jul 12, 2019

Traveler: Laura R. - Local specialist: Lena Sluga

Our only complaint was that our driver, Azzam, suggested that we leave Petra earlier than the itinerary called for because we didn't need that much time Petra and so that we could have more time at the camp in Wadi Rum before sunset. We found we did want that additional time, and there was nothing gained from getting to the Wadi Rum camp earlier. It was mid-July, and our tent was barely habitable in the heat, but we couldn't be outside. Otherwise, Azzam was great, but this suggestion was not a good one.

Hi Laura,

Thanks for your feedback, I will pass it on to the driver. I will also get in touch with Khaled about the tents, to see how we can improve this situation in the future.

All the best,

Wonderful trip and so excited to be able to share how much fun I had. Wouldn’t have been possible without Amanda’s help and our great driver Akram. Jordan is a beautiful country - everyone should visit!

Great experience working with this company! Amanda was quick to respond and made sure our trip had everything we wanted to see in a very short timeline. Assam, our driver, was very punctual and made our trip headache free. It was amazing to walk into a cold car with water bottles ready at every stop.

Assam, our driver, was very punctual and made our trip headache free. It was amazing to walk into a cold car with water bottles ready at every stop. He knows Jordan very well and we felt safe at all times driving all over. Our tour of Madaba and cooking class really gave us a chance to experience the culture and have genuine conversation with the husband and wife duo that owns the operation. I really enjoyed learning and chatting about their perspective of the country! Jordan is a destination worth visiting at least once in your life. I would strongly recommend this company for a worry free vacation for an adventure of a lifetime!

We spent 5 absolutely fabulous days in Jordan organised by Amanda. Everything was spot on. The organisation, selection of sites and timing were perfect. We had Safwat as our guide and driver. The service was impeccable from our arrival at the airport where he was waiting for us to his guidance, advice and suggestions right up to the very end when he safely transferred us back to the airport. I will definitely book my future holidays with kimkim.

From the start I interacted with Amanda. She planned everything based on the short time we had there and on what we wanted. It was never so easy to plan a trip. I told her the cities or places we wanted to see and the itinary was done so quickly. Even when I wanted to make changes, she changed them and responded quickly to my demands.

Assam was our driver. From the moment we met him at 3:40 AM at the airport until the moment he dropped us, he took very good care of us. The car was very nice, always clean and cold. After a walk in the castle or at Jerash, per say, it was nice coming back to a cool car. Assam was very patient and even took the liberty to show us some stuff that weren't planned, which we loved. He was very friendly and his English was good enough for us to understand him. We felt safe with him.

I couldn't recommand this agency enough. If you are looking to book with an agency in Jordan, please consider doing it with Kimkim. The trip was well planned and the staff was very friendly! Thank you again for everything.

A genuinely excellent experience from beginning to end. Booking was simple and our agent Amanda was amazingly helpful, flexible and courteous. I was particularly impressed by her checking in with us routinely during the holiday. Everything worked perfectly, with our driver and guide Haitham being both punctual, friendly and an endless well of knowledge and advice. Needless to say Jordan itself was magnificent. Petra left us speechless, particularly the iconic view of the Treasury as we emerged from the Sic. The Dead Sea was floaty as advertised and Wadi Rum was just as beautiful, and spiritual as it appears on screen! Amman, complete with Haitham arranged feast at a local restaurant was also a highlight. My only regret was that we only had a few days to absorb everything and left so much unseen. We have to return. In sum, a truly great experience and worth every penny/cent. Outstanding.

I don’t even know where to begin. Everything about our experience was fantastic. Our friend was originally visiting Jordan solo when my husband and I decided to tag along.

Carmen was so accommodating in switching everything from a single person itinerary to a party of three. Any questions I ever had were answered very quickly.

Our itinerary was well laid out allowing us amble time at each location. We had a rather short trip and while we did move a lot to fit everything in, it never felt rushed or overwhelming.

Our driver, Azzam was so kind. He was right there at the airport when we arrived. He’s a champ because after dropping off my husband and I at the hotel, he had to head back to the airport to pickup our friend who was arriving on a much later flight. It was a late night for him but there he was a few hours later ready to take us to our first location. He answered any questions we had and just seemed like a really nice person.

I enjoyed all of the hotels we stayed in. They weren’t chain hotels (i.e. Hyatt, Holiday Inn) so you felt like you were getting a more authentic experience.

Visiting Petra was incredible. We had one little hiccup where Petra at Night was on our itinerary but the tour was not offered the night we were there. Carmen contacted us the next day and we were immediately given a refund for the cost of those tickets. We were very appreciative of that.

Being at the Dead Sea, Petra, the Wadi Rum desert, a Bedouin camp, it was all a fantastic experience. I could have never put a trip like this together myself so I’m grateful to Carmen and her team for everything they did. Thank you!

This trip and the organizing lived up to expectations. Amanda was in touch on a daily basis to ensure that all was in order and or to make last minute changes/additions to the itinerary to ensure that we derived the maximum enjoyment from our holiday experience. The other very special touch was Akrem (our personal driver) who drove us for the entire journey. His stories and attention to the littlest detail was extra special and he really made the experience all the more enjoyable.....wonderful company and now a friend. The only suggestions I would offer is to be crystal clear of your preference for accommodations. Amanda is not a mind reader so be very clear if you want or need upgrades. It’s better to pay a little extra for these comforts rather than need to make the change mid trip. Also the dinner with a “Jordanian family” was quite an experience. This should have been explained a bit better as we thought we were going to a sit down dinner as we would come to know it....actually this was the home of a Bedouin family, sitting on rugs, eating with hands etc. Niah our host was wonderful, but my wife almost wore a dress to dinner which would have been quite uncomfortable. Given that the custom is for the men (and Western guests) to eat in one room while the women and children in another. Nonetheless this was genuinely a great experience and shouldn’t be missed.
We had limited time (8days) and wanted to see as much of Jordan as we could. The Itinerary was quite comprehensive ensuring we hit all the high spots but also allowed plenty of beach downtime as well. NOTE: you’ll appreciate a pool because it can get very hot!. The highlight though was our “Lawrence of Arabia” experience in the Wadi Rum.....absolutely breathtaking and stunning.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this Kim KimTours and look forward to our return.
Shukraan jazilaan!!
